Following up on previous questions, should we change the site title to Mind?
Jeromy Anglim proposed some criteria for a good site title, which I think we ought to adopt for this question.
- Accurate in communicating scope
The first question to consider, then, is "Should we change the site title at all?" Based on these criteria, the answer seems to be yes. First, "Cognitive Sciences" is not short (neither is it particularly long, but that is not the criterion). Second, "Cognitive Sciences" does not accurately communicate the scope of the site, which also includes non-cognitive approaches to studying the mind, such as ecological psychology and possibly psychodynamics, and other non-representational approaches to the study of mind. The current title therefore only fully satisfies one of these criteria for a good site title.
NOTE: To prevent this from becoming a discussion with no possibility of a definite answer, you may simply downvote this post if you disagree with the proposed criteria or my conclusion that based on these criteria, we ought to change the site name.
I will give my own analysis of whether we ought to change the name to Mind based on these criteria in an answer.
